We have a winner

Antique monogramed holder with pretty delicate lace and a vintage postcard
French lace and ribbon with Eiffel tower charm
A Savon tin with a lavender sachet, soap, vintage handkerchief, rose, ribbon bow, and button.

I have picked up a few little treasures on my travels ~ wish I could have brought something back for you all. Thank you for visiting me and your kind notes you left.
Karen I got you some buttons, Marsha I have a Laduree box for you, and Michelle I saw a rabbit teacloth so had to get that for you.
Now the winner, chosen by using the random number generator is Tracey of French Larkspur, I will send a surprise gift of some things I bought on my travels.
Please email me your address and I will get a little parcel in the mail to you.
Have just had a chance to take a few photos.

I am feeling much better after a dose of the Tamiflu vaccination and seems strange to have the flu when the sun is shinning and the weather is hot out there.

I will share my photographs soon. Hope that you are all having a happy week
